How to use "Contritely" in context?

Contrition consists of sorrow for one's sins or transgressions, or an expression of regret for those actions. It is the opposite of malice.

When we sin, we knowingly or unknowingly break a law of God. We can choose to turn from our sin and seek forgiveness, or we can choose to maintain our animosity towards God. Regardless of our choice, we must always recognize that we are completely responsible for our sins, and show genuine sorrow for them. Too often, we try to hide our sin or disregard the pain we have caused others. This is not contrition.
